Light the flame of internal audit.

Will You Help Us Fuel the Fire?

Internal audit’s future is supported in two ways — knowledge and education. Research fuels deeper knowledge and understanding of emerging issues and establishing long-term solutions, while academic relations supports internal audit education to fuel a pipeline of new and stronger talent to address the emerging issues of tomorrow.

The IIA Research Foundation (IIARF) and The IIA’s Internal Auditing Academic Advancement Fund (IAAAF) were established specifically to address these ongoing and equally important initiatives.

Our charitable foundations solely exist to cultivate quality internal audit educational programs and relevant research. Our work is only made possible through generous contributions and investments in the future of the profession.
